  • Beach time sunrise to sunset!

    "What a wonderful vacation in such an amazing home. Beach time is great because you could always hang out in the shade of the house if it gets too hot. The Gulf is nice and calm most of the time, so you don't really need a pool to just chill out in the water. The house is stocked with all the kitchen necessities, plenty of towels, linens, pillows, games, crayons, binoculars, sand toys, floats, kiddie inflatable pool, bait net, etc. The house has cable TV with plenty of HD channels. Wifi and a golf cart was included which was nice for the times when we needed something to do. There is also the preserve close by. We went on a walk on the path through there a couple times which was nice. The only part of the vacation that was a bit stressful was the water taxi. The captains aren't very hospitable so just ignore their grouchiness when booking a pick up (make sure you schedule a week ahead of time). We had never had a vacation like this so packing was interesting, grocery shopping was tough and loading onto the water taxi could have been better coordinated. My advise to newbies... When the reviews say "pack light", that means don't pack anything you think the house won't have, because it will. We didn't need extra trash bags, towels or toys (for toddler) since there was plenty there. And we brought WAY too many clothes. There is a washer and dryer in the house so for the 8 days we literally did not wear anything more that 2 or 3 bathing suits, 1 pair of sandals, 2 sets of PJs, a couple of cover ups (or T's for the guys), a hat and that's it! Since we are now experienced with the water taxi, next time we will just do a better job of packing less and combining bags as much as possible for groceries. Overall, we had such a great time doing nothing all week. Thanks Sari and Glen!"

  • Boater’s Paradise

    "My wife and I live in the Tampa area so this was I nice short ride but it’s a world away! We love to go places that we can have the boat in the water and go exploring – The Boca Grande area is beautiful for that. We spent the days cruising the intercostal, out in the Gulf, and hanging out on a sandbar raft up spot at the inlet. The villa is large and airy, beautifully decorated, and has top of the line appointments throughout. Lovely views from the many decks and out every window. We had two of our adult kids with us for a few of the days we stayed. The kitchen is large with everything needed to cook up some nice meals. The bedrooms/baths are also large with comfy linens and towels. Plenty of room for way more people than we had in our group. The pool is just across the way out the front door. We trailered our boat and it was a quick ride from a nearby public boat ramp to the dock behind the villa. The dock is on a calm canal, is well kept, included poles with bumpers, plenty of cleats, water/electric, and ladders. Lots of fun to watch the fish jumping all day and night. A full service marina is also right there – very convenient to fuel up and grab some supplies. The owner was very responsive to our questions and made the stay very easy – we would definitely return again in the future for another visit."

  • Secluded island paradise

    "John's place is awesome! Perfect getaway for any family. There is plenty of privacy if you want to come with another couple or keep the in-laws downstairs in the separate apartment. Upstairs has a king bedroom, a queen bedroom and a full bathroom. The house is stocked with towels and all of the kitchen essentials you could need. There is a nice screened in porch with a table for 4 and porch swing to relax on after a day at the beach. There are also toys for the kids and movies to watch. A bouncy seat and pack and play are available to use as well. You should rent John's golf cart at least for a day to explore the entire island but you can easily walk to the bay side and the beach because of it's great central location. Everyone on the island is super friendly and there are no cars to worry about. We felt totally safe setting the kids free on their own to walk to the docks to fish or to go walk on the beach to look for sharks teeth. The beach has beautiful sunsets and you are sure to see plenty of manatees and dolphins. John lives close by and can help with anything you may need. There is a water taxi service available ($) if you need to run to the grocery store or go explore someplace on the mainland but reservations are a must for this service. John brought us across on his boat much cheaper than the water taxi and he was a lot of fun! I'd recommend going with John if he is available. We will definitely come back and recommend this place to anyone. Thanks!"

  • Wish we could have stayed longer!!

    "This was our first time staying at LGI and our family of four (8yo & 4yo) loved every moment of it!! Tom was always very quick to respond when planning our visit and at one point during our stay when we needed to reach him. We chose the villa because it included the dock for our boat as well as a golf cart to explore the island. Even though the beach and the docks were within walking distance we all had so much fun on the golf cart. We went out on our boat fishing everyday and saw lots of dolphins, manatees, stingrays and even sharks. One afternoon while we were at the beach a manatee came right up to us and a group of people allowing us to pet it. It literally kept bumping into us and sticking its nose out to check us all out. Our kids will forever have this special memory! It was the coolest thing ever! The villa wasn't anything fancy but we weren't looking for fancy. It had everything we needed and there were even some spices and condiments left from previous guests which came in handy. We didn't really watch TV but there were several DVDs, there was also a nice selection of board games in the guest closet which we did use during the afternoon thunderstorms. If I had to think of anything negative I would say that the master bedroom mattress was too firm for me but that's just my personal preference. By the end of each day we were so worn out that it didn't really matter. We took this trip to get away from everyday stresses and just enjoy nature as a family and we did just that. We made so many family memories and already want to go back!!"
